Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have split up for the second time — just months after they got back together.
The 26-year-old actor broke the news to his former girlfriend at the weekend, telling her that they would be better off as friends, the Sun reported.
According to a source, Stewart had flown to Los Angels and was supposed to be Pattinson’s date for the Golden Globes, but he told her that he wanted to cool it off.
The source said that Pattinson loves the 22-year-old actress but would rather go back to being good friends so that they can rebuild their trust and focus on their work after Twilight.
Stewart is upset but understands that she shouldn’t have pushed Pattinson to reconcile after her infidelity and is hoping that he’ll come round and time will be a great healer, the source said.
The source added that Pattinson was under immense pressure to ditch her as his friends told him to focus on his career.
Pattinson is planning to stay in his LA home while Stewart is moving to New York to make a fresh start, as she feels people leave her alone there and she has a bit more peace.
The ‘Twilight’ couple’s four-year relationship first hit a rocky patch in July, when the Stewart had an affair with married film director Rupert Sanders.
They reunited in September and attended November’s premieres of final vampire film Breaking Dawn, Part 2.
